Ivar Injury Update: Could Need Surgery

On Monday’s Raw, Ivar suffered a “cervical injury” after doing a suicide dive to the outside.

WWE released a statement that said, “As a precaution, Ivar was transported to a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.”

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, it’s a “significant” injury and it’s possible that Ivar may need surgery.

“Nothing is for sure, but it hasn’t been determined whether or not he’ll need surgery,” Meltzer said. “Itโ€™s a significant injury. Once you say that, it tells you that itโ€™s not like a stinger where you’re gonna come back in two weeks. It’s probably a lot worse than that. So, itโ€™s not determined yet, but itโ€™s absolutely, as of today, a possibility.”

Ivar thanked people for their support and said that he’s “working hard to recover and be better than ever.”
